NTIS: PB 198 247, 1970; :1-24
Three model dwelling units were redesigned to achieve specific levels of noise reduction above that provided by conventional construction. Using 1968 prices, the added costs of materials and installation were found to range from $500 to $5,000 depending upon the size of the dwelling unit and the degree of insulation. The potential aggregate expenditures for sound insulation materials are projected to reach $617 million in 1975, including about $408 million for the mineral-based materials, in 1968 constant dollars. The report includes a brief review of the mechanics and effect of sound. (Out of print.)
